Beloved piece: I love capes. I love sweaters. I found a sweater cape and have never been happier.
Admired designer: Thakoon
Favorite aspect of fashion: I work in jewelry, so when it came time to pick out my engagement ring, needless to say my husband had a few helpful hints. I was able to confidently design a ring that was all my own by taking elements from several pieces that I loved at the shop. A few months later, during my brief and unsuccessful search for “The Dress,” I realized, like my ring, I had something in mind that just didn’t exist yet. With a vote of confidence from how well the ring turned out, I set out and met with a local seamstress who was able to make the most beautiful skirt – exactly as I had imagined. I’ve studied drawing, watercolor, painting, ceramics, and sculpture, and it was so fun and fulfilling to have a design idea, find someone talented to create it, and have it be a part of the most important day of my life.
One more thing: I love banners, bookends, and having the longest road in Settlers of Catan.
